This is a spicy vegan dip that is popular among my friends and family. Even those who say they are not fans of spinach love this dip. I am always surprised when I make it because it is so easy to make and it is practically foolproof.
There are only 5 ingredients, and I always have them on hand, so I can whip it up when my friends drop by unexpectedly. I love to serve it with wedges of fresh baguette that have been lightly brushed with olive oil, or tortilla chips
Spicy Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip
Vegan party dips don’t get much better than this, especially when you’re looking for an alternative to traditional spinach dip.
The vegetables in this recipe all go together quite well. The artichokes add a savory flavour while the spinach adds a healthy punch and the avocado gives it a creamy texture. The ingredients are all Paleo-friendly, which means there will be no guilt or regret when you eat the whole bowl of dip.
I am a huge fan of spinach artichoke dip (I’m a sucker for those flavors) and I make it pretty frequently at home, but I had never tried to make a lighter version until I got the idea to replace the cream with my favorite nut—cashews—and I’m so glad I did!
Cashews are so creamy that you won’t miss the heavy fats, and you can also use them to amp up the nutrition in the dip. Cashews are high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, fiber, and protein. They’re also full of a lot of essential nutrients like magnesium and potassium.
It’s Super Bowl Sunday!
For many people, the Super Bowl is about the commercials, the half-time show and the game. For me, it’s also about the food.
In particular, it’s about the spinach artichoke dip that doesn’t have dairy and is filled with nutrients. In fact, this recipe is a great example of the types of foods you can eat in a healthy vegan diet. While dairy and meat often get all the attention in a vegan diet, this dip made with spinach, artichokes, tofu and nutritional yeast is packed with nutrients.
I finally tried this recipe and it was delicious. I would say it wasn’t the best dip I have ever tasted but it is a good alternative to those who do not like to consume dairy products.
This dip has to be served hot
If you want to serve it cold it doesn’t taste very good in my opinion. This was a new recipe for me and I really like the fact that it is in bite size shapes because I could easily grab them with chips.
The dip also looks very pretty and tastes amazing. I think it is a great party food or brilliant to have on hand when you are having people over for a game night. I enjoyed trying something new and I would definitely make this all the time.

Artichokes are from the lily family, and they’re related to daffodils, sunflowers, and hyacinths. Here are some of the benefits of eating artichokes: Artichokes contain inulin, a type of prebiotic fiber that feeds healthy gut bacteria.
Artichokes can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Artichokes are alkalizing to the body, which means they can help prevent an acidic pH in the body.
Artichokes contain antioxidants that can fight free radical damage. And, because of their high water content, artichokes can help keep you hydrated.
